Timestamp in User Editor
The User Editor dialog box includes a timestamp indicating when a user last reset their password. This informs users how long before their password expires and enhances password security.
Resetting a Password
Users can reset their password by navigating to the Central tab > Account page, and clicking Change Password. Alternatively, they may be forced to reset their password during the login process (if their password has expired).
The Account page displays how many days until a user’s password expires (if applicable). In addition, a detailed error message describing password requirements will appear if a user’s attempt to create a new password is unsuccessful.
The Login page will prompt users to reset their password if it has expired. The new password must adhere to the password requirements and must be different from the old password.
